" Best co-working space in Penang: 24/7, great events, free coffee "

I spent several months working here, one of the best co-working spaces I encountered on my travels! For just 300 RM a month you can use this space 24/7, so no matter your working hours, there are no restrictions. You also get an allowance to use the private meeting rooms, so much in fact that you'll probably never use it all. Their website is very modern, so you can pay there with credit card or PayPal and conveniently book meeting rooms. The staff is super friendly, kind, and very helpful. They organize many events, whether it's just having lunch with your co-workers so you can get to know them more or bigger events where you will gain knowledge about a particular topic. I requested and hope in the future there will be movie screenings. As a co-worker, you get free cookies and coffee. There is a basket with other snacks, ramen noodles, and pizza like bread for which you put money in a jar. Admittedly, it can be a great temptation to eat too much sugary stuff, but they also sell delicious oranges sometimes.

Tip from user

What do to do? Attend their events, even if it is just to get to know people. You'll make friends and maybe even find people you can go into business together or you can help each other out. If you need anything, just ask the staff. They are very friendly and eager to help you. Where to eat? Low budget food courts are Sri Weld Food Court (morning) and The Jetty Food Court (afternoon and evening). There are many other places, for a bit more you can get a great meal at Awesome Canteen. My favorit

"ACAT: A place for Affordable, Creative, Acknowledged, Talents" 

January 2019

ACAT is an amazing space for freelancers, start-ups, etc. The community is equipped with loads of resources in terms of very diverse talents. You can find people with almost any skill set here. Technology, design, education, content, etc. Drop by anytime even if only to just say Hi. People here are friendly and everyone is welcome at ACAT. I have been renting a space in ACAT since May 2018. There were some issues with the WIFI towards the end of 2018, which the administrators have resolved in January 2019. All in all, this is a great starting point for businesses and freelancers alike. Hope to see you here.

"A great collaborative space!" 

January 2019

aCAT Penang offers great value for the coworkers. They have stable internet, various perks and benefits, spacious common area, comfortable & productive working environment with all basic office amenities (meeting rooms, pantry, printing machine). It is located at the center of Georgetown with great access to public transportation, hostel, local food stall, restaurant and banks. It is near to some famous tourist spots such as Little India, Penang Street Art, famous historical buildings, etc. Besides, the management team constantly organizes community activities & technology/entrepreneurship related events and workshops. It is a great place to meet people from different background! Great community involvement!
